4.0 out of 5 stars Troubled Journey 1 Jun 2005
If you want to know how it was to be a missionary kid in the days when they endured years of separation from their parents and communication was by letter only, read this book.
How does a child feel when their siblings die? Faith Cook will tell you. It made me weep A moving story of missionary sacrifice told by an Isaac born on the altar of her parents' chosen
calling in war torn China and then troubled Malaya.I know how it feels to take a child to boarding school and see them cry the whole way but thankfully we were separated for a month at a time only.
Here is what a four year separation means. Faith Cook questions her parents' sacrifice but never their faith. Read it and be thankful we are in another century now.

5.0 out of 5 stars A warning 23 May 2009
This book was written to show that the traditional abandonment of their
children by missionary couples is wholly a bad thing. The case is unassailable.
The book is very moving, and is by no means an attack on the many well-motivated
missionaries it mentions; it just shows how wrong they were. It is a reminder to
all that we should take note of what is in the Bible rather than just following our
traditions. The book also shows God's providence and love for his people.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful short read 31 Jan 2012
By L. Mrachek - Published on
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Fans of Faith Cook's inspiring books about committed believers through the centuries will be happy to know she has written an autobiography about her childhood. As the daughter of missionaries in China during World War II, she endured untold suffering as she experienced lengthy periods of time away from her parents in various boarding schools and grieved the loss of two siblings. It's an interesting look at the sacrifices missionaries and their families made less than a century ago and a comforting reminder of the sovereign protection of God.

I purchased this book because Faith Cook is one of my favorite authors. I enjoyed reading about her childhood especially since I learned about the typical struggles of missionary children of that era.

I have always been interested in the Communist Revolution and what it cost the Chinese people..This tells more about what it cost to be a missionary or the child of a missionary.
